With a love of textiles and color, Margaret Long and Sue Simonton went looking for the ultimate fiber. What they found was suri alpaca.
Suri alpaca bred to the highest standards. Fleece as fine as 16 micron. We have spent 15 years improving the breeding — improving the fleece. Suri alpaca is the rarer, more lustrous alpaca fleece, feels like cashmere and takes dye like silk. Not all suri is the same just as not all wool is the same. Called by Incan royalty “The Fiber of the Gods.”
To improve the fleece to a degree of fineness and consistency not thought possible and, produce the finest suri yarns available. The result is heaven in your hands! To be able to do all of this with completely US sources and US processing and to dye in an environmentally safe way. We even recycled all our water and water the pastures with it!
Then along came Margaret’s husband, the engineer and math geek! Dean set about finding a way to increase production for wholesale distribution while maintaining the quality and character of hand-dyed skeins. He built us a dye house where we are now able to dye in 76 skein batches, he even automated it!
We sell wholesale only, to a limited number of chosen retailers. If you are interested in being a stockist for LGF Suris, we look forward to sharing our yarns and hope to cooperate with you in bringing the finest suri yarns to your discerning knitters.
